Full Time France 2 Romania 1: Payet screamer gives host’s a winning start


France win in their opening fixture against Romania, with Giroud and Payet making it to the score sheets.

FULL TIME FRANCE 2 ROMANIA 1 – In form Dimitri Payet fires France into a winning start with a last minute thriller from outside the box.
Payet, 29 who has been in spectacular form for Premier League side West Ham, and who’s addition to the French starting eleven over Martial was questioned, was in fine form as he assisted Olivier Giroud 12 minutes into the second half to open the account for the tournament, and scored the winner himself with one minute to play.
Giroud’s flick was equalized 8 minutes later by a penalty taken coolly by Bogdan Stancu.
Both Giroud and Griezmann missed two chances each in the first half, with Lloris making a fine save in opening minutes.
The next fixture of this group is Albania vs Switzerland.
